[George F. Gibbs to J. Garfield Bastow, Dec. 17, 1917] [S]hould circumstances arise in your army experience to justify you in ceasing to wear the garment, such deprivation will in no way affect your religious status, living or dead, taking it for granted of course that your worthiness to wear the garment remains unchanged, as it is ceasing to wear it of one's own free will and choice that constitutes the wrong-doing, not from doing it in obedience to legitimate authority or from justifiable circumstances .
